I bought a C5 booster for my first gen on ebay for 150. Love it and relatively easy to mount. Had to cut the rod and use an early 70s Nova bracket to mount the booster to the firewall. Easy

Or you can run the tuff stuff booster part number 2229NC

Works perfectly with the DSE reduced angle bracket

You will also need the pedal clevis kit

Vince, I'm attempting this exact tuff stuff setup above on a former manual brake 69 Camaro. It looks like I'm getting interference with the booster hard rubber boot and firewall in the last inch of trying to bolt this up. Any ideas on this issue? Do I just tighten it down, or clearance the firewall hole, or ...? Thanks in advance. Ron

I installed one on with friend's 69 camaro a few years back and on another after. I can't recall if all 4 bolts on the existing bracket match the firewall or if only 3 do. I can check when I get home. The one hole I know for sure that didn't match was the large diameter hole the push rod goes through. I welded the hole shut and redrilled it higher. I then mounted the pushrod onto the lower hole in the brake pedal.

Well it looks like I can't just tighten it down as this will cause a preload on the brakes. Anyone run into this with this popular combination?

Edit: I got some advice to clearance the firewall hole similar to the DSE setup. Will try that soonest.

Sorry I missed this, some firewalls will need some metal moving. The manual cars have a smaller hole, depending on who was working that day.
